I haven’t been with him since 2002. However, I've gone into relationships with the expectation of my partner being open and honest with me as I am with him. It seems to be a "curse"...a "curse" that has been a factor in why the 4 relationships I’ve been in since 2003 have failed.
This week, I got a friend request on Facebook from an ex. I ignored the request and I sent a message asking what he wanted. He responded, stating he wanted to say hello and was confused as to why I asked the question. I proceeded to remind him of the last time there was any correspondence between us. It was in 2010, via a text message he sent to his sister, in which he said:
“Tell Kenya I said ‘F*** her!’”
Oh, I aired that nigga OUT on Facebook and Twitter. First, middle AND last name. Thank God for growth, though. I had forgiven him way before this apology I received during the exchange this week.
After, politely*, reading him, he states:
“One thing I’ve always loved about you is you always tell the truth.”
Hmm. I couldn't tell when we were together. And I couldn't tell when we attempted to be friends in the years since we were together. Now he wants my number so we can talk.
This "rekindle friendship->act like an ass->disappear->repeat" cycle.
Miss me with that.
K to the...
*I say “politely” because I didn’t curse him out. I’m classy.
